Counseling Center

Welcome to the Whitman Counseling Center. Everyone experiences times of change and stress in their lives. Sometimes that process is smooth and understandable. At other times it can be chaotic, challenging, and upsetting. Coping with and managing these stressful times can be difficult so that it interferes with daily wellbeing and functioning. At times, it is very helpful to get the assistance of a professional trained to work with people in the process of exploring and solving problems.

Managing Stress at Whitman

The Counseling Center Mission

The mission of the Whitman Counseling Center is to help all students who are experiencing psychological difficulties that interfere with success at college. In a safe, confidential environment students are assisted in overcoming personal, emotional and psychological issues that may negatively impact their goals, social functioning and overall Whitman experience. The Counseling Center strives to aid students in acquiring the skills, perspective, and resources necessary to both succeed in the college environment and to pursue a satisfying and productive life.

A core component of our mission is the promotion and affirmation of diversity in the broadest sense. We strive to create an environment where all people feel welcome and respected from any diverse racial, ethnic and national background, gender and sexual/affectional orientations, mental and physical abilities, religious/spiritual beliefs, languet, class, age and social-economic background as well as other types of diversity.
